GSN orders car-dealership reality show

'Family Trade' is first of net's 'real-life games' series

As it continues to expand outside of its tried-and-true gameshow territory, GSN has picked up reality series “Family Trade” for eight half-hour episodes.

The original unscripted skein follows the barter system used at family-owned car dealership G-Stone Motors in Vermont. G-Stone employs a loose “We’ll take anything in trade” policy, accepting pigs, a hot air balloon, coffins and shoe collections as a swap for a new car or truck.

“With ‘Family Trade,’ GSN launches a new category of original series we call real-life games — shows that take place in real settings and feature real-life risk and reward,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN’s exec veep of programming. “We’re taking the cameras out of the studio to celebrate how people become winners in everyday situations.”

“Family Trade” is produced by Lionsgate and Rogue State Prods., with Eli Frankel serving as exec producer. Net expects to bow the reality skein in 2013.
